Every play in the game of volleyball is critical, whether it is serving, passing, setting, hitting, or blocking.  To make those plays requires excellent on court mobility; quickness, agility, acceleration, explosive approach/vertical, body control, balance for a controlled landing and quick transition, and stamina for the long rallies and matches.  At Acceleration Indiana, we have helped hundreds of volleyball players achieve success through our Volleyball Power Programs.  Science defines power as force times velocity.  Our programs train your muscular, nervous, and energy systems to deliver more force at the velocity of your volleyball movements for more winning plays.

The Science to achieving our outstanding results is referred to as Neuromuscular Training (NMI) and was pioneered by John Frappier the founder of Acceleration/Athletic Republic.

The Equipment John developed proprietary/patented equipment to be able to do NMI training.  These include the Super Treadmill, Plyo Press, Power Cords, and many more.

The Training Protocols are science based for maximum effectiveness and administered by degreed, professional trainers to ensure the training is tailored to the individual needs and abilities of the athlete via one on one training.

The Results Our methods allow up to 200% to 300% more recruitment of the motor units and muscles responsible for explosive movement to generate game winning approach speed and vertical height.

Mobility Improvements

-Vertical increases up to 8” (Typically 2”-5” increase)

-Increased arm swing velocity for hitting up to 20%

-Reduce approach transition time up to 25%

-10 yard acceleration time reduced by up to .45 second (Typically .12sec-.30sec)

-Pro Agility quickness time reduces by up to .40 second (Typically .15sec-.30sec)

-Multi directional agility/foot speed improvement up to 46% (Typically 25%-35%)

-Stamina improvement for long rallies and matches up to 60%

Volleyball Power Programs

Each athlete is pre tested to determine their movement abilities and areas that need improvement then follow their own individual program based on test results and needs. One on one training bouts are intense, but tailored to the age and ability of the athlete, with adequate recovery time to ensure the athlete maintains good form and control.

Mobility Power Performance Improvement programs are available for all positions. Improve: quickness, explosiveness, agility, coordination, balance, strength, power and stamina. Programs vary from 12 to 24 sessions of 60 or 90 minutes in duration to match your needs based on age, position, and ability.

Hitting Power Take your game to the next level! Increase your vertical (2 to 8 inches) and your hitting power with our unique Performance Development Program for hitters

  • Train with or unique Plyo Press to develop explosive lower extremity power for increased approach velocity and higher vertical.

  • Learn proper landing technique to reduce ground reaction force (GRF) from 4-6 G’s to 2-3 G’s and therefore reduce the risk of stress fractures, joint problems, and non-contact ACL tears.

  • One on One Training with our Solo Spike to learn proper technique and improve hitting power/velocity with our patented VB PowerCords. This training also strengthens the shoulder/rotator cuff muscles to reduce the likelihood of repetitive stress injuries to the important rotator cuff area.

Total Power Combine elements of 1 and 2 above for the ultimate in overall performance improvement. 12 90 minutes sessions for youth/jr high and 16 90 minute sessions for HS/College.

In Season Programs

        In season training with Acceleration once/week results in continued performance improvements not just maintaining you performance. Requires one training session/week or two or three sessions/month.

Highly Recommended!

We see significant gains in all sports using this approach

10 (1 hour sessions)

10 (1.5 hour sessions)

Packages can be adjusted up or down in number of sessions based on your schedule

Bottom line: You will improve! And your coach will love working with your improved athletic ability to further develop your on court play!

Injury Prevention Training

Our goal is to develop not only outstanding player performance but to train, teach, and condition the athlete in ways and methods that minimize the risk of injury

  1. Proper Warm Up All volleyball players arrive 15 minutes before their scheduled appointment to do 15 minutes of active dynamic warm up to improve muscle tendon elasticity to allow the body to better tolerate sudden and/or out of balance movements without resulting in muscle pulls and strains.

  2. Specialized Equipment our proprietary plyo press for developing explosive jump power is designed to reduce lower back loading up to 80% compared to the traditional squat exercise.

  3. Hitter Training the plyo press jumps will develop increased eccentric power in the lower extremity to be able to absorb and reduce impact loads due to jump landing from 6-8 g’s to a more safe range of 2-4 g’s. Therefore, reducing the risk of stress fractures in the back, tibia, or bones in the feet. Very importantly, this also reduces the valgus moment loading at the knee to reduce the risk of a non-contact ACL tear.

  4. ACL Screen Ask about scheduling our ACL screen for the risk of a non-contact ACL tear and our risk reduction program. ACL failures are 4 to 8 times more likely for female athletes than male athletes in volleyball, basketball, soccer and lacrosse. Failure rates begin at age 11/12 and increase to a peak at age 16 with some decline at age 17/18, but still significant at college age and beyond. Our ACL screen will identify if the athlete has a high probability of high stress at the ACL doing volleyball jump landing. If so, the good news is we have a risk reduction program that results in significant reduction in the probability of high stress on the ACL. Contact us to schedule you ACL screen.

  5. Rotator Cuff Hitters are at risk of injury to the rotator cuff area due to the high velocity arm swings and number of repetitions required by this position. Training with our patented PowerCords not only improves arm swing velocity, but also, strengthens the rotator cuff, arm, and back muscles that have to decelerate the arm, thus reducing the risk of injury.
